Family, Holidays, Snow, Skiing, & Work

I wish that our life was like the title and in that order. As we all know, our priorities usually get screwed up along the way. This is not a bad thing but in reality we all work too much - but is this a bad thing when you really love what you do? We really love what we do - making Tessa Clogs and introducing them to the world one customer at a time - but I know that we do get stressed around the holidays. Wish it wasn't so but it is. So our cure for the stress - go skiing.

Wednesday was a good day this week. We got up early, shoveld out the bunker, got the kids pointed in their direction, we turned off the phone and put a sign up - WENT SKIING BACK AT 11AM - and did as the sign said. This is not something that we like to do but when you live in a ski area and you just had over 10inches of the lightest champagne powder - sometime you just got to say - lets go skiing. With the resort being open over 30 days so far, this is only our 2 day up. Did I say - It was a good day.

We took the bus in from our humble abode here in Minturn and the driver had Peter Tosh cranking on the bus. The perfect tunes for a powder day - just jamming Jamaican reggae. Our legs are weak and we were only up there for about 3 hours. We skied back home to Minturn - It was a good day.

We also need to share - we have the best employee working with us - Elisabeth. Whether you call us on the phone or stop in and say hi, there is a good chance that you will run into her. She is off the boat from Sweden living in the valley with her American husband and 2 of 3 kids. Imagine living in a foreign country, speaking a new language and working - I know that it would be impossible for most of us. We want to thank you Elisabeth for working with us and to let you know how much you are appreciated and loved.
